What began as a custody case to decide the future of a Navajo child is now waiting on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court — and Rebecca Nagle says it has implications that extend far beyond one Texas family.

Nagle is a journalist and a member of the Cherokee Nation. She is out now with the second season of the podcast "This Land."

In it, she’s breaking down this case, the larger battle over the Indian Child Welfare Act, as well as what it could mean for the future of Indigenous rights.

The Show spoke with her to learn more about the case and its potential impact.
